Born and raised in Mexico City, Andrea came to New York City as a dancer. She later completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honors in illustration at the School of Visual Arts. Her inspiration comes from her culture, childhood memories, nature and travel. Her aesthetic in drawing is primarily based on lines, movement and elegance, inspired and influenced by dance.
At 9 years old Andrea had a drawing featured in Marie Pierre Cole’s book “Guadalupe: Body and Soul”. This work was also exhibited at Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City. She was also exhibited in the Foundation End-of-Year Drawing Exhibition in the Fine Arts Department at the School of Visual Arts and her work "English Tea" at the Society of Illustrators at the Student Competition exhibition in New York in 2017.
In 2016 she illustrated the cover of the book "Pirouette Surgery" by Rosina Andrews, and her second book in 2017 "Leap Surgery".
Her work "Mercado de Flores" was exhibited at the "Illustrators60" at the American Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in NYC in 2018.
You can see her latest interview at ballpitmag.com in "Featured Artists" and in the issues of August, September and October from The World of Interiors.
Her latest work "Celebrando la Vida" (Gold Medal Winner) was exhibited at The American Museum at The Society of Illustrators, in early 2019.
She is available for commissions and artistic collaborations.
